Why You’ll Love It
There’s something so indulgent about Chinese takeaway. But finding low-carb options on a menu filled with high-carb ingredients and added sugars isn’t an easy task.
That’s why I prefer to make my Chinese food at home, including one of my favorite dishes — sesame chicken.
My low-carb sesame chicken recipe has so much flavor with ginger, fresh garlic, and soy sauce. And for a touch of sweetness, I add Swerve brown sugar substitute for an authentic flavor combination.
